Hello from Milton Keynes, England

Hello from the city of a thousand roundabouts, where live thousands who don't know how to go round them, or what the switch marked 'indicators' is for.

I suppose it's about time I joined this forum, having a) lurked upon it for ages, b) my brother joined some time ago c) I've had my Pentax four years longer than he has, and d) I talked him into having a Pentax instead of some other Names I Could mention.

(Thinks) I wonder if he will spot this?

The first camera I had was a Diana, then there was a pause until 1972 when I learned to use the school SLRs, a pair of Zenit 3Ms.

I had a Pentax ME when they first came out, with 28, 50 and 105mm lenses, and a K2 body. This all got sold when I was impoverished and I had a Minolta X700 outfit when I decided to go digital. The K10 was dropping in price and I was just about to buy it when the K20 came out. More pixels, higher ISO but same handling as the K10. I bought one, with the 16-50 lens. This sometimes wasn't wide enough so I bought a 12-24. This sometimes wasn't wide enough either so I bought a 10-17 fisheye. It's usually wide enough.

I sometimes deign to sully my hands with longer lenses.....

Er, gotta go out, I'm running late! More in other posts later.

Welcome to the forum, your intro post should now stop those lurker messages coming your way too.
